Please Do Your Part to Make the World a Better Place

I wish to encourage everyone do to everything within your power to protect your planet and the people.  We all have the ability to make this world a better place.  No matter how young, old, poor, or infirm, you can make a difference.

We created The Fishermen to be a model from which anyone could base a charity of their own.  Out of nothing we created something world-affecting, and so can you.  We didn’t need lots of money, an office, and paid staff.  We use donated shipping and supplies to provide aid to the children, work out of our home, and have a staff of highly talented and dedicated volunteers.  You can accomplish the same with very little effort.

It doesn’t matter where you focus your charitable activities or how much you are able to help.  All that matters is that you do something.  Be your own hero. As Ghandi said, “If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change.  As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him…we need not wait to see what others do.”

Our deepest sympathies go to the people of the Islamic Republics of Iran and Pakistan.  We are here to assist you in your time of need.  We will be following your situation closely over the next few weeks to determine possible action by our group.

We Are Here if You Need Us, Boston!

Boston was struck by a horrible terror attack on Monday, April 15, 2013, during their annual Patriot’s Day marathon event.  At the time of this posting, at least three people were killed and another 183 injured by blasts from two improvised explosive devices.  

Evidence from the crime scene indicates that the IEDs used in the attack were relatively small and simple in construct, using common kitchen cookware to contain explosives surrounded by BBs and carpenter nails, and detonated by an unsophisticated timing device.  As of yet, no group or individual has claimed responsibility and no arrests have been made.

We are here for you, Boston.  If you need any assistance from our group we will be glad to assist.  Our deepest sympathies and heart-felt sorrows go to the victims and their loved ones.

As of yesterday, we began re-writing our “Do Not Touch” coloring book to offer to American children so that we may be better prepared should this occur again.  As always, our publication is free to anyone in need.

Domestic Version of Our “Do Not Touch” Explosives Awareness Coloring Book is Available for Immediate Use

Posted by worldorphanrelief on April 16, 2013

DNT Cover

Though woefully inadequate for domestic purposes, I will be offering our “Do Not Touch” landmine/ERW, and IED-awareness coloring book for immediate use by children here in the United States.  This publication was created specifically for Afghan children, but will at least help our little ones begin to think about identifying and avoiding explosive dangers.

Sarah, my wife, and I created our “Do Not Touch” coloring book to be used as a simple teaching aid to keep children in current and former war zones safe from landmines and other explosive remnants of war (ERWs).  Included are some examples of IEDs, which is definitely applicable to domestic concerns.  What is not adequately addressed are situation-awareness issues.  I have and shall continue to work with the Mine Action Coordination Center for Afghanistan (MACCA), Tabish, Colin King, and UNICEF’s Landmines and Small Arms team, as well as the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) and several other NGOs, to correct this lack of information in a second edition.  To address immediate domestic concerns, however, I will be adding  information to the current edition in order to better inform our children about explosive threats.

I’ll be spending most of today converting text into English and adding a few examples of domestically-relevant situations to avoid.  Our “Do Not Touch” coloring book will be sent free of charge via email (PDF format) to anyone upon request.  I hope this will help protect our children from future acts of terror.  Please email me at trinity.oak@prodigy.net to expedite dispatch.
